"How can we be the best - the best town in London with the highest success rate of reducing crimes committed by youth? We can do that by electing the best people who have the best interest in creating a safer Croydon day and night?
I had worked with young people in schools, youth clubs and other communities’ settings. My experience taught me that preventing youth violence comes with a deep knowledge and understanding of those contributing factors that lure our young to crimes. Regardless of race, religion, class and sexualities, every young individual look-up to us, the ‘Adults’, to guide and make the right decision. I want to be part of these ‘Adults’ that are dedicated in taking extra measures in supporting our young to be better citizen for Croydon and our Great Britain.
We as a community have a collective responsibility in being a great role model for all the children and young persons that live and school in our borough. I will be part of the voices that will make big difference in shrinking juvenile delinquency. I love Croydon and I only want the best for this great town."

The chohort we support are Level 3 and 4 (Child Safety Board) and typically feature court orders, school refusers, vulnerable young people, LACs, domestic violence, gangs involvement and substance missuse. Our outcomes include reduced re-offending, increased educational engagement, family partnship and EET. We work alongside YOS, FFT, FRS, CAMHS, CAYSH, Social Care, Housing and Alternative Education Provision. I personally sit on the Youth Crime Prevention Board and was asked to join the CSE & Missing Children Board by the chairperson. In addition to my work in Ment4, I am an international consultant in anti-human trafficking."

"I am very concerned about the areas of 'disconnect' as between refugee groups and their lack of access to community organisations (be they social, sporting clubs or religious groups). and I know that they feel alienated. From my time with the now defunct 'Refugee Project' much needs to be done to be more welcomed into and integrated into society. Prior to its demise though lack of funding I was the Chair Person"
